Susanna Maida, Ph.D, New Mexico Liaison: is a wild woman alchemist who surprised herself and everyone who knew her by falling in love with the entrepreneurial spirit. She’s passionate about giving evolutionary women who care deeply about the fate of our world, the soul-satisfying sense of alignment that comes from growing thriving, world-changing businesses doing their great work. As the old economy continues to unravel, tremendous opportunity exists for women to lead from the sacred feminine and help reweave our world by getting paid well to share their transformative gift. Called “a gift from the goddess” by some of her clients, Susanna is known for blending conscious proven business practices, an orientation to inner transformation that honors the sacred in everything, and a strong focus on cultivating “right relationships” with the complex interweaving threads of work and life. Weaving these together, she shows women entrepreneurs in the business of transformation how to generate a generous income while serving more people in less time, all with greater feminine ease and grace. Motivated women touched by Susanna’s gifts have gone from their business being just a twinkle in their eye to working with their first high-end clients in a mere few months. From there, they learn how to flourish wildly while making their greatest contribution to a world in need. Unafraid to go for what she really wants, Susanna took one look at where the path of her first “proper” career as a groundwater hydrologist was taking her and decided it would squeeze the life out of her. So she ditched that profession and followed her passion for nature and the river. She then spent ten amazing years leading whitewater rafting trips and teaching whitewater schools. One day, while sitting in the back of her raft as it lazily floated between two big rapids, she realized she could never again stuff herself into any sort of “normal” job. Ever since, she’s been using her creative maverick energy to help visionary women get to the truth of why they’re here and create a lucrative business for bringing that out into the world.
